The fragile Antarctic environment consists of a closely linked system of the lithosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. Changes in this system have influenced global climate, oceanography and sea level for most of Cenozoic time. The geological history of this region therefore provides a special record of important interactions between the various components of the Earth System. Antarctic Marine Geology is a comprehensive single-authored book to introduce students and researchers to the geological history of the region and the unique processes that occur there. Research literature on the region is widely disseminated. The book is intended as a reference for all scientists working in Antarctica, and will also serve as a textbook for graduate courses in Antarctic marine geology.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: ' ... a well-organized format that brings a sense of real progress to a diverse series of subjects. This book is going to be a classic reference.' Eugene W. Domack, EOS: Transactions, American Geophysical Union
Review of the hardback: 'This is a fascinating and well-produced volume ... It is easily readable and refreshingly lacking in obscure language. It deserves a place in any geological library.' A. J. Sheehan, Open University Geological Society Journal
Review of the hardback: 'Although there are several useful accounts of these topics, this is the first time that the subject has received comprehensive treatment. The book, in fact, is more wide-ranging than the title implies, and will thus be of value to all earth scientists and others working in Antarctica. ... this book represents a dignificant achievement in drawing together a wide range of disparate information. ... the book is a valuable addition to the literature. It will prove to be essential reading for all Antarctic marine and glacial geologists, whilst students taking advanced courses in glacial sedimentology will find much of relevance.' Journal of Polar Record
